What spooky retro videogames are you guys playing to celebrate the ghostly and ghastly Halloween season?

Excellent old thread...

>> No.5938782

Played through splatterhouse 1 and 2, replayed the first castlevania and rondo of blood so far this october. Gonna try the arcade castlevania because there aren't any other retrovanias I haven't played besides Simon's quest, the gameboy games, and Dracula x forever ago.

>> No.5938801

Nice. I still have to bite the silver bullet and play Simon's Quest.

>> No.5938847

I like Simons Quest a lot, mostly because there’s no time limit, except for different endings. I wish the translation was good, because then it would be a very serviceable game. The exploration is a really cool idea, and I like uncovering the secret items.
The downsides are the bosses are a joke, many items are useless, and (again) the translation is grade a quality ass.
With a handful of tweaks, it could have been a much better game, but it’s still enjoyable to play as long as you take it with a grain of salt.

Is Haunting Starring Polterguy on Genesis any good ? Im curious about it.

It's a unique and silly game. Although it isn't very long.
The main draw is watching all of the cartoony animations for the various "fright-em" jumpscares.

Anon here. Just finished a playthrough of Castlevania Dracula X on SNES and that last boss was complete bullshit. The first form, anyway. I did cheat a little(used a savestate after I beat the first form), but I don't feel bad. I'll replay it again without savestates on my own time.

The other night I finished the original NES Castlevania for the first time and it was a blast. No cheating on that run. It crossed my mind several times but I powered through. Definitely gonna replay again some time.

Anyways, gonna start a blind run of the PS1 version of Resident Evil 2 tomorrow around 2am EST if anyone wants to hang. I'll need all the advice I can get. I've never beaten a classic RE game.

Also, on the first level, run directly into the first zombie you see. You'll die, but on the 50th time (or it might be the 51st, I forget), a special animation will be triggered where the zombie will give you a hug and doubles your total health. Zombies in the first level during that playthrough will give you hugs, but act normally starting on the second level.

It has to be the FIRST zombie every single time, and you can't turn the game off, so you have to do it in a row.

Retranslation + Map is a more accurate adaptation of the original JAP game. It has many improvements added over Redacted too.

>Complete with intros and outros scenes
>An in-game map feature based on the map from the JAP manual
>Improved item management
>You can no longer accidently buy doubles of unique items
>Whip selection
>being able to drop down from safe staircases
>Improves NPC dialogue translation to more clearly communicate hints to the player (as opposed to just telling you what to do like in Redacted)
>Best of all, the day/night narration boxes are removed and a simple transition occurs instead!

Redacted is for babies who want their hand held
Retranslation + Map is for players who want to play the game

P.S. You can download the patch there or at the official sight. There you can download a custom patch that lets you pick and choose the features you want!
FYI You can change the language on the site to your preference.
